Well, I walked right into this one without realising it is supposed to be the hardest mission in the game >< After first couple of tries I was, like, wow, I really need to boost my hp (at the time I only had curaga master hp + 500%, but already have genji shield + raise on, and maxed VIT and SPR).

So I fiddled with materia fusion (terrible at it) and discovered I could combine my curaga materia with status ward (you can buy in shop), which doesn't change curaga to something else (yeah!), plus elixir or fat chocobo feathers (of which I have plenty) to boost %. It cost quite a bit of SP but it did bring the 500% up to 999% (hurrah!)

I went in again and when I got to the boss ... there were THREE of them!!! Luckily, I had the DMW wheel spinning a few times and when those little b*stards got together I just costly punched them to death in one go! Phew!

Now looking forward to stealing lots of phoenix downs from Minerva LOL

Just max-ed HP and replaced brutal with Genji Gloves ... the 9-6-x dungeons are now manageable. I swap between Lucky Stars and Zantetsuken depending on the battle, I find both fun to have :-)

I really don't want this game to end ><

final challenge!

I could max out both VIT and SPR for the Minerva battle BUT I love the DMW so much *lol* I'll stick Lucky Stars in there.

Current setup is:

Costly Punch
Quake + Curaga (to boost HP to 99,999)
Zantetsuken (to max MAG/ Curaga)
Lucky Stars (just for fun ><)
VIT Up++ (to max VIT)

Genji Shield
Genji Glove
Adaman Bangle (don't have the other Genji gears yet)
Ziedrich

Okay, the battle with Minerva just felt ... long ...

Here's my tuppence: turns out we do need to have max SPR is well, but max MAG is, like, a bit overrated. I just spammed potions ><

Am I glad I stuck Lucky Stars in there though! Like, I TOTALLY LOVE Cissnei! Whenever I was in a pickle of a situation... Modulating Phase !!! You can DO IT, Zack!!! HURRAH !!! And the Phoenix Down just took care of Judgement Arrow and Ultima.

Now I have Divine Slayer ^^... I just need to complete all missions and, hopefully, 100% all the DMW (Cloud 80%)

I 100% both the DMW (Cloud, you tease!) and Missions and, truly, Heike Soul is a bit of a downer. Consuming SP? Seriously? So I just stick to my Genji Armour & Shield, as well as Divine Slayer & Ziedrich for stats boost. No need for Genji Glove since Costly Punch is kinda crit every time anyway.

And am keeping Lucky Stars on ... best Materia EVER!
